In conjunction with the opening of Symmetry in Stone: The Jewelry of Richard I. Chavez in the Lovena Ohl Gallery, you will also be able to view the start of a two-week long installation process by Cheyenne River Sioux artist, Cheyenne Randall. Born in 1978, Randall investigates identity and the idea of celebrity obsession and apotheosis in his work. Working in digital photography, Photoshop, paint, and wheat paste installation, the artist delves into constructed notions of individuality and the semiotics of representation, while concurrently questioning subcultural practices such as tattooing and graffiti, examining the liminality between sanctioned and unsanctioned works of art. Watch as Randall installs his first of seven wheat paste murals at the museum.
Enjoy complimentary museum admission and an evening under the stars with the music of local DJ This-Just-In and the delicious offerings of the Heard Museum’s famed café and cantina as well.
